I came here to ski for the weekend after a business trip. Unfortunately, the snow had melted and I was close to canceling my trip -- but I'm really glad I didn't. The Chalet had a beautiful setting in the Chamonix Valley, and the owners could not have been more hospitable. I arrived late at night to a warm and cozy room. Breakfast the following day was delicious and copious -- pan de chocolat, cereal, tea, juice, fresh-baked bread... One of the owners was also around to give me suggestions to do for my non-ski weekend. He also loaned me a bike to get around town (less than 10 minutes away), and let me borrow a pair of sneakers because I had forgotten to pack non-dress shoes! I had to leave early the following day, and they helped me to arrange a cab and set the oven timer so I had a warm pan de chocolat for the trip back to Geneva. My room was small, but the bed was incredibly comfortable and had 2 windows looking out onto the lawn. The bathroom was spotless.
The location is not ideal for going to a pub or skiing, but there are buses in the morning if you're skiing, and town is not such a long walk away. And everything else more than makes up for it!
